What is the best way to ensure a safe workplace?
A safe workplace is one that prevents accidents and protects its workers. The best way to reduce accidents—and the lost work hours that come with them – is to provide employees with the training to know when something is wrong, the tools that make it easy to identify and report problems, and the ability to facilitate the immediate sharing of that information so a safety manager can take action right away. Many companies today choose user-friendly iPad and iPhone applications to avoid the delays and inefficiencies caused by paper-based safety processes. These mobile solutions have proven to be very effective, and can even be used to create preventative maintenance programs that rely on historical safety data to predict, and ultimately prevent, future accidents.
